Judy Lynn Robinet Pisello, 50, of Winter Park, Florida, passed away peacefully at home in the arms of family on Sunday, October 8, 2017. Judy was born on January 14, 1967 in Lapeer, MI and moved to Vero Beach, FL with her family at age 13. A graduate of the University of Central FL, Judy was a serial entrepreneur whose talents with technology and design led her to multiple successes in business, both independently as well as jointly with her husband, Tom. While her talents and business prowess were enviable, Judy’s proudest accomplishment by far was raising two beautiful, strong young women, both of whom she would accurately describe as fierce but sensitive, independent but loyal and generous. Her pride in and devotion to her daughters was boundless.
In her youth, Judy was well known for her athletic and academic achievements. As an adult, her ability to juggle the pressures and responsibilities of a full-time career while also raising two fabulous young ladies left many to wonder how she could do it all, and make it look so effortless. Throughout her life however, Judy may have been best known for her intelligent wit and her endlessly generous spirit.
Her phenomenal group of friends are a lasting testament to the kind of person Judy was. During her seven-year battle with cancer, a disease which she refused to allow to define her, Judy’s “village” came forward in droves to give of themselves in countless ways. When thanked for their generosity, each would say “she would do it for me”. Judy truly loved, and was loved by so many; a truth that brought her both pride and peace in times of hardship.
Judy is survived by her husband, Thomas Pisello and her daughters Sophia Grace Pisello and Alaina Rose Pisello of Winter Park, FL. She is additionally survived by her mother, Carolyn Robinet of Vero Beach, FL, and her siblings: Roger (Valaine) of Vero Beach, FL; Jean (Randy) Elkins of Seattle, WA; Ron (Edie) of Modesto, CA; Susan Robinet of Seattle, WA; Diana (David) Buzinski of Harrison, MI; and Bill (Marie) of Long Beach, CA. She was preceded in death by her father, Arthur Lyle Robinet.
